I only went to one NASCAR race and I don't recall anyone bringing suitcases packed with booze into the stands. I do recall spending lots of money on beers though. Maybe its different in the infield.

The rules on this have been changed but up until about 2004 you could bring in as much as you could carry. No glass containers, etc...

But now each person is only allowed to bring in one of those cooler bags. Even the larger one you might stuff a half a case of cans in there.

Regardless it is the only major "sport" event that allows you to BYOB.

@TOOTMO - That's the infield alright... same deal at Pocono. So many people you couldn't get out for hours after the race... folks built bonfires and just camped out till everyone cleared out.

Sounds strangely like some other events I used to attend... hmmm...

Must be different. I was always in the infield with a U-Haul full of beer, a ladder, and beach chairs. When the gates would open, it was like the Oklahoma Land Rush. You would go through the tunnel orderly but as soon as you came up on the other side of the track in the grass, it was pedal to the metal to try and stake a claim by the fence. People were doing donuts in the wet infield with twenty-foot Ryder box trucks. There wasn't a whole lot of "supervision" down there: it was kind of anything goes. This was at Talladega; I've heard not all tracks were like this.
